18 Apr 2017 Oracle's Hurd: Answer The Questions That Really Matter To Your Business [62684]
By Chris Murphy

Chris Murphy writes in Forbes, "Oracle CEO Mark Hurd tries to avoid broad tech industry jargon like 'big data analytics.' Instead, as a CEO, he wants to hear about a real business problem and how data analysis helps solve it.

Like this question, which he's pushing his own teams to answer:

'What kinds of people succeed at Oracle?' Hurd asked, speaking to HR leaders on April 11 at the Oracle HCM World conference in Boston.

Oracle has hired tens of thousands of people over the past five years as it grows, adding to its a massive employee data set. Do recent grads from certain universities, with certain GPAs, tend to do better at Oracle, or does the success of such hires have more to do with the manager they're assigned? 'What common corollaries are there among the people who succeed?' Hurd asked..."

13 Apr 2017 America's Cup Boats Draft Moore's Law Technology Curve [62443]
By Rob Preston, April 13th 2017

Rob writes in Forbes, "The boats that competed for the 32nd America's Cup, off Valencia, Spain, in 2007, weren't much faster than the ones Queen Victoria watched sail down the Solent strait during the first Cup race almost 170 years ago. But the yacht-technology advances of the last several years have been nothing short of astounding.

New craft-lifting, drag-reducing hydrofoils and wingsails, augmented by ultra-responsive control systems and space-age aerodynamics, have nearly quintupled boat speeds while improving maneuverability. The catamarans that will fly above water in the 35th America's Cup qualifiers, playoffs, and finals, to be held on Bermuda's Great Sound in May and June, will reach speeds exceeding 55 mph. Sammy Hagar should take note..."

12 Apr 2017 Nutanix: How Automation Changed Your IT Department [62427]
Forbes, April 12th 2017

Adrian Bridgwater writes in Forbes, "We hear a lot about IT automation and machine learning these days. It is mostly at the software application level where the emphasis is very much on automating blocks of code that can perform the same (or similar) function in different application use cases and different (often similar) business workflows.

Behind the application layer, automation is also growing in importance in the cloud datacenter itself. This type of automation works to enable routine provisioning and maintenance tasks so that they can become 'self-service' options handled automatically, freeing up IT support staff to concentrate on more important matters..."

11 Apr 2017 Education Ministry Moves From Spreadsheet Scrum To Financial Restart [62445]
By Rob Preston, April 11th 2017

Rob Preston writes in Forbes, "New Zealand's Ministry of Education faced a challenge all too common in the private sector. Its financial organization had too many spreadsheets, databases, outdated applications, and disconnected processes to manage effectively. So it was difficult to hold budget overseers accountable for financial performance and give people across the Ministry access to the information they needed for planning, forecasting, and other purposes.

The Ministry of Education, which manages an NZ$14 billion (US$9.8 billion) annual budget, is unlike most companies in that its remit is wide-ranging and public-service-oriented. Among its responsibilities: Provide funding for a variety of programs to boost student achievement in New Zealand's primary, secondary, and tertiary schools, while reducing education disparity. As such, the Ministry needed to modernize and integrate the financial systems and processes that make all that important work possible..."
